Hope

Only a breath apart
Our souls
Wrapped around
Each other
In this highly anticipated
Reunion

Forgotten worlds
Vowed promises
Reflect from your eyes
I recognize you
Undeniably

So much to say
Yet I lose my ability to speak
In any other language
Than unconditional love

My heart begs me
To reveal you
My solution
Promise you
We will make it
To the other side
Of our forever

Unfortunately,
I am not
The writer
Of your destiny

I just hold your face
In my palms
And wait…
For your lips
To greet mine

Silently praying
You’d inhale
Even a little bit
Of the faith
That whirls
In me

The song
We used to hum
Separately
Turns into a sweet duet

When our lips touch
And we breathe hope
In eternal harmony

Our Symphony

Two silhouettes
Bathe
In the fragile moonlight

Dreamy glances
Play an inviting
Yet silent prelude
Until the breathless sighs
Begin to echo
In the stillness

Ascending anticipation
Increasing need
To play the symphony
That never
Grows old
But always vibrates
Within us

Our hearts drum in unison
With each
Yearning beat
A passionate masterpiece
Gets louder and stronger
Like a midnight thunder

Beautifully orchestrated
Crescendo
Unfolds
The finale

Smoothly
Devotedly
Fiercely

Quivering in harmony
We outshine the moon

La Solitudine

A deserted beach
Footprints
Only in my heart

Deep divine sea
Crystal blue sky
Complemented
By the hopeful beams
Of the maternal sun

The careless wind blows
Bittersweet memories
Unlived dreams
From the times
When I was
Your long-awaited
Once in a lifetime

Tomorrow

An unknown destination
On the horizon
Veiled by the tender mist
Of my past

Eyes closed
Breath held
I imagine

The sound
Of your
Returning footsteps

Time
After
Time

In solitude

Kiss the Rain

The recognition
An indescribable sensation

The enlightenment
Of the heart
The awakening
Of the soul

When something long-lost surfaced
Exposed
My forgotten destination
Unveiled
My fate

Your eyes
Mirrors that have reflected
My soul
In so many different faces

My guiding lights
Through countless lifetimes
Of searching and finding

Your voice
A sound like no other
An echo from the past
Filled me
With the feeling of safety
And soared through me
Like a butterfly storm

The feeling
Of not belonging
Is finally making sense

Every word I’ve written
Every path I’ve chosen
And the song I’ve hummed
During the journey
Has carried me back
To where I belong

All I had to do was listen…

The Senses of Love

Your breathless whisper
In my ear
Sensuous notes
Of love and lust
This is what my heaven
Sounds like

The sunrise
In your eyes
As we tie a lovers’ knot
In body and soul
This is what my heaven
Looks like

The heat
Of your bare body
Resting upon mine
As we enjoy our lazy day
This is what my heaven
Feels like

The flavor
Of your desire
On my lips
Making me yours – completely
This is what my heaven
Tastes like

The aroma
Of your smooth skin
Filling the air
With pure seduction
This is what my heaven
Smells like

No Words

I want to write you
A sensual story
Of yearning

A poem
That will never
Come to an end
But burns and flows
Endlessly
Like our kisses

And every time
Our lips meet
A new verse forms

I want to write you
A powerful ballad
Of love

A song
That will become
A part of your heartbeat
Always reminding you
Of your own importance

I want to write you
A mysterious novel
That goes back
To the beginning of time

A classic
That needs
No words
But is understood
At that moment
When our souls
Dance together
In the same space

A promise
Of undying love
That my eyes
Will speak
Every day
Until the end of time

Dance with Me

Dance with Me
(just one slow waltz)

My love,
Take my shaking hand
And dance with me
For good times’ sake

Wrap your arms
Around my quivering body
And glide with me
In a sensual rhythm

Allow your heart sing
One last serenade
With mine

Taste a final poem
From my lips
And let me breathe you in
Once more

Let’s close
This unfinished chapter
With whispers
That only we
Can hear

Let’s celebrate us
Until
It is time to change
Companion

Please
Dance with me
Just one
Slow
Waltz

Together We Are Poetry

You don’t speak
Yet I hear
Every word
From the quickening beat
Of your heart

Your beautiful nakedness
Is a canvas
Under my fingertips

With devoted brushes
Adoring strokes
I cover you up
With my love

Your smooth skin
Is my treasure map
To the hills and pathways
I want to explore
Again
And again

Like a prophet
I want to declare
The timeless mystery
That lies
In your alluring eyes

Let me bathe
In your beauty
And drown
In the depths of you
Again and again

Together we are poetry
